Genetic sex separation in Anopheles arabiensis and the production of sterile hybrids.

Abstract

The gene for dieldrin resistance has been artificially male-linked so that females can be selectively killed with dieldrin. By intercrossing different sibling species of the Anopheles gambiae complex, batches consisting of sterile males only can be reared. This seems to have potential for use in genetic control operations.
